Lane will compete with DeShawn Shead to start at right cornerback, the Seattle Times reports. Lane missed all but the final six games last season recovering from a broken wrist and torn ACL in the Super Bowl. He's healthy and likely the favorite for the starting job. The Seahawks, though, might rather him play nickelback, where he's been effective. Brandon Browner is also in the mix.
Lane has re-signed with the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Lane has been solid when healthy over the past two years, with 10 pass deflections and two interceptions. But he has played in just 13 games and made just three starts due to repeated injury issues. Still, the Seahawks liked what they've seen from him enough to keep him around.
Lane was activated from the reserve PUP list Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. Lane tore his ACL and suffered a gruesome arm fracture during last year's Super Bowl -- injuries that combined to keep him off the Seahawks' active roster until Saturday. The 25-year-old will likely take over as the nickel cornerback quickly, but he could become the starter opposite Richard Sherman in the coming weeks if Cary Williams continues to struggle.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Thursday cornerback Jeremy Lane still has a ways to go before he can return to the field, reports 710 ESPN. Lane is trying to recover from a compound wrist fracture and ligament tear in his knee, which he suffered in the Super Bowl. He is unlikely to be healthy enough to participate when training camp opens.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said cornerback Jeremy Lane will endure a lengthy rehab process following his injury in the Super Bowl. Lane suffered a compound wrist fracture and a knee-ligament tear in the game. "That's a long process to get back,'' Carroll said, via ESPN.com. "It's about how he handles the final stages of it." There isn't a set timetable for Lane's recovery at this time. He finished the 2014 regular season with 13 tackles, one forced fumble and three pass deflections.
